Doane University Reviews

So far my freshman year has been amazing! It s a small school so everyone knows everyone. And because it is so small, the class size averages about only 13 students per class, so the professors know you by name. There are many ways to get involved on campus! The only thing about campus the I wish would change is the quality if the food served at the cafeteria. Other than that I love it here and I can't wait to see what my sophomore year has in store for me!

Doane is a small campus which means that everyone knows everyone. We are all one big family, which I love. Everyone supports everyone. All of the athletes come to the choir and band concerts and art students go to all of the sporting events on campus. There are so many ways to get involved on campus and everyone is usually involved in those activities. There is so much pride in being a Doane Tiger and I think everyone should be able to experience that.
I love the campus here at Doane university! the amazing trees and grass all around makes me The class size is also really great the most i've ever seen is thirty to a class. This allows the professors to really get to know students on a personal level and it also makes the professors more approachable. I would like to see the campus food options and the town of Crete's food options increase but they are working on it. Overall Doane is a fantastic place to live and i wouldn't change the four years i'm going to spend here for anything.
